I'm looking forward to turning out a great piece of work for a great cause, and I'm trying hard to stay motivated through the whole process. It's nice to be one step closer.
I know quite a few people who run their own publishing companies, so many others who publish their own books. Some, I admire. Others, not so much. I just want to get this right. I have to admit that I get discouraged seeing how some people make it look so easy and so fast.
This project has been turning and churning in my head since 2009. It was already like pulling teeth to get people to contribute, especially considering all of the very talented people I know who would have been great to have on board, and along the way, some who initially agreed to participate have bowed out. Understandably so, since it's taking so long to get it off the ground, but still. I wish I would know more sooner so I could do more faster. *Sigh* Some contributors have stayed on board, but I can't help but wonder how long they'll stick with it. I hope, I hope, I hope!
Geez. It really is a labor of love. So much time, energy and money invested in getting this right. And then, more time. And then, publicity! God, help me.
But yeah. It's still nice to be one step closer. I hope that readers will find it all worth the wait. *Shoulder to the wheel.*
